Showtime Charters Key West

Go after a “Grand Slam” with Showtime Charters Key West! Captain Sam Shaw has a ton of experience and many tournament wins under his belt, meaning there’s no one better to tick fish off your bucket list with.

You’ll be casting off of a 24’ Skeeter center console. She’s perfectly suited for 4 anglers, who can all fish at the same time. The wireless trolling motor will have you silently cruising the shallows and the live well will keep that bait fresh. If you’re hoping to dive into the crystal-clear waters, let Capt. Sam know and he’ll provide snorkeling gear for everyone on board.

Hit up the flats, shallow reefs, and wrecks for Bonefish, Permit, Snook, and Tarpon. Catch 3 of the 4 in a day and you’ll have yourself a “Grand Slam”! Head offshore and you’ll have your shot at a variety of pelagic fish including Mahi Mahi and Kingfish. Up your chances at hooking a Sailfish by trying your hand at kite fishing!

All the fishing gear you need for a productive day on the water is provided. That includes Shimano, Penn, and G Loomis rods and reels. You’ll use a combination of live and artificial bait to hook your catch and Capt. Sam is happy to do any cleaning and filleting at the end of the day. There’s bottled water on board but feel free to bring any other drinks and snacks you’d like to enjoy.

Hop aboard and get ready to make some Florida fishing memories with Showtime Charters Key West!
